My wife and I brought my her sister and her brother-in-law to Positano on their first trip to Italy. After living in the country for 2 months we told them how friendly the Italian folks can be and how AMAZING the food was. Well, Il Fornillo in Positano validated both of our statements as the service was especially inviting and... More

Food was ok. One thing i didnt like was that they don't let you add a side of pasta to go with your main dish. If you want pasta side you need to order one of the pasta main dishes at full price. I found service quick but not friendly.

Service was minimal, food was uninspiring. Nothing was terrible, but nothing was special either. So many wonderful choices in Positano, but this isn't one of them.

On a hill over looking the sea this is a friendly, welcoming restaurant. The food was very good and reasonably priced. We went back twice during our seven days stay (on balance I preferred it to both the Michelin starred restaurant we visited in Ravello and the restaurant in our hotel - the Villa Franca).

We had the dinner for my daughter's wedding here for 15 people. Even though it was arranged less than two weeks before the event they were most accommodating and provided wonderful food and service. The staff was friendly and attentive, especially regarding the meal choices for my two young grandchildren. Everyone agreed that it was a wonderful meal and a... More

We had two dinners at this restaurant and from the gentlemen waiters to the two sisters that own and operate the restaurant, we were warmly greeted and taken care of exceptionally well. From several exceptional starters to our first and second courses, the food was absolutely delicious and well priced. The house red wine was very nice and the closing... More

This is a beautiful spot, and so romantic! We had pasta and pizza, and it was very tasty. Only complaint is that it took about 20 minutes for a server to get to our table (there was two other couples there) and once we ordered we never saw the server again. Very surprised by the service.

I love Positano and the whole Amalfi coast but like every touristy area it has become difficult to find a good family style restaurant and pizzeria. Every time I come to Positano I go to this restaurant, Il Fornillo, because I know that every plate is prepared right when I order and not 3 days in advance. Their fish is... More

Perhaps like most restaurants in Positano, Il Fornillo is indifferent. We were seated badly because of over capacity, there was a tree right next to our table of two, so one of us wasn't so comfortable. The food was so so and the bill was high. Service was not excellent, the waiter forgot some of our orders including taking the... More
